Liberty Bell Trail Description

Currently just a half-mile long community trail in the borough of Hatfield, much greater plans are in store for the multi-use Liberty Bell Trail.

Plans call for the trail to follow the route of the former Liberty Bell Trolley Line from Quakertown south to Allentown, a total of 25 miles. In addition to providing a multi-use trail through the northern Philadelphia suburbs, extensions north to the Saucon Rail Trail and south to the Schuylkill River Trail, along with connections to numerous other local trails, the Liberty Bell Trail will eventually form part of a long-distance greenway that will connect the Philadelphia and Allentown-Bethlehem metropolitan areas. In addition to the existing segment in Hatfield, the boroughs of Lansdale and Perkasie, as well as East Norriton Township, plan to build sections of the trail in the near future.

The segment in Hatfield begins at Liberty Bell Plaza, a redeveloped square with a town clock, picnic tables and an adjacent delicatessen, just south of East Broad Street. After crossing East Lincoln Ave., the crushed stone-surfaced trail continues south, between the West Branch of Neshaminy Creek and an active rail line, crossing the former on a bridge about 1500 feet northeast of Main Street. It continues past Main Street, paralleling the active rail line for about another block to the southern terminus at the intersection of West Vine Street and Butler Ave.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available off of East. Lincoln Ave. at Liberty Bell Trail Plaza.
